At the time of this writing, it's been almost two years since this book has been published. I've read it through a couple of times and lent it to a couple of friends. My friends and I all enjoyed it very much. With the Secret Invasion event coming to a close and a new Iron Man movie coming up on the horizon, Marvel felt it was a good time to launch a new on-going Iron Man book, making this the second Iron Man book on the bookshelves at the time of its original publication. The timing was good for this release, and they were able to secure a great creative team for the book in the trio of writer Matt Fraction, Spanish comic artist Salvador Larroca, and colorist Frank D'Armata . At the time the original series debuted, I was already familiar with all of these creative talents. I had been reading Fraction's work in the The Immortal Iron Fist, Vol. 1: The Last Iron Fist Story series, had the pleasure of viewing Frank's outstanding coloring work in Annihilation: Conquest Book 1 (Bk. 1), and had fond memories of Larocca's great artwork during his tenure illustrating the X-Treme X-Men, Vol. 1: Destiny (Xtreme) series. Thus, I had a lot of faith that this series would turn out to be worth my while and above average. Happily, I was correct about this.
At the outset of the series, Tony finds himself on the run from an unlikely group - namely the S.H.I.E.L.D. organization that he used to run. (For more on this, you can read the book Iron Man: Director of S. H. I. E. L. D. -- with Iron Hands.) At the end of Secret Invasion, Norman Osborn appears to the world as a hero and is given the authority to take over S.H.I.E.L.D., which he re-names H.A.M.M.E.R. Eager to take full advantage of this group and its enormous resources of both military firepower and classified information, Norman has clear plans for Tony Stark, who he labels as a traitor and a failure. Knowing Norman's intentions for him, Tony sets in motion a plan to deny Norman access to both classified information that could endanger his friends and access to his Iron Man suits.
As Tony races across the planet, one step ahead of Norman Osborn and his henchmen, he attempts to destroy all of his Iron Man suits in all of his secret bases. Because Tony (and Norman) consider Tony's great intelligence and own personal knowledge his greatest asset, Tony also begins a sort of erasure of his own brain. Losing both memories and thought processes, Tony becomes more and more vulnerable the longer he is on the run. Requiring assistance from all of his most trusted friends to see him through to the end of his run, the fugitive Tony Stark has intimate encounters with several of his female colleagues who believe he is certain to end up dead at the end of his run.
The book was a great read, and was complemented, perfectly, by beautiful artwork work. Pretty much everyone on the creative docket is firing on all cylinders with this book, and what they have presented up with, here, will certainly go down in history as one of the finest Iron Man stories, ever. A great start to a new series. I just hope they can continue to flourish throughout their entire run on this series.
One final thing I'd like to mention: This book, unlike most Marvel omnibus editions, is not clad in a black hardcover. Instead, it has been packaged in a blood-red hardcover with gold lettering. It's a small, but very welcome detail that adds more value to this book. Kudos to the editing team for making a near-flawless book.
Cool Factor: 9/10
The biggest thing I liked about the first arc was that it didn't require you to know the in depth history of Tony Stark. While I had some inklings it gave you enough hints and flat out said/reminded you of the parts you did need to know. The other part is that it was it's own book. In a industry where the majority of the big name titles are involved in "Summer Crossover XII" and your favorite comics are interrupted to take part in the mindless crap that the majority of the crossovers are, this one did not directly get involved in those.
Instead we're treated to Stark dealing with not just another tech/gimmicky enemy, but someone who's created a new type of Iron Man based tech, and gone beyond the typical suit of armor. I found this very interesting, especially the way they explain all the little psuedo-scientific ways it breaks down and works. Another nice little benchmark in this comic is there is actual drama and tension and you feel for these characters. The idea of Tony dealing with his fears and seemingly actually weighing him down is great to read. Again, I'm new to Iron Man, so if someone has done it better than Fraction, good for them, but I'm just reviewing the book I did read.
The second arc does deal with the 'summer crisis crossover infinity' bit, but it does it in a smooth transitioned way. The character isn't simply thrown at aliens or other heroes in a mindless conflict. He's dealing with losing his mind, literally. There is a bit more of a focus on Pepper Potts and her being a heroine, and Maria Hill being a badass field agent fighting against an entire agency sent to capture her. The change in dynamic between the 3 people being heroes and comfortable to fugitives almost constantly on the run is a fun transition to watch and read as well.
Tony Stark still comes off as a smarmy know it all playboy who wants to do good for the world, even if the world doesn't want to be good. The cast of characters are a group you care about and want to know what happens next. It's a comic book hero so you know things are going to turn out alright (for the most part) but how you get to 'alright' is a damn good trip.
